Thermostat with ELC

Is anyone running a hotter thermostat after flushing and replacing with ELC? I was planning on replacing the thermostat, so I got to thinking about finding one around 200. How efficient is the ELC compared to the Gold at a higher temp in the oil cooler? I guess my main question is there any info about benefits of running a 6.0 hotter?

It shouldnt make any difference. Mine didnt deviate at all. But then again, my truck insists on running 198-200 ECT no matter what. New thermostat or old...

If you find a hotter thermostat for the 6.0, let me know. I am looking for one too.
I think they only come as a190*F. If you can run it hotter, it runs more efficiently and will realize a little extra fuel economy, not much but a little.

New thermostats for the Ford 6.0 start to open at 1928 and fully open at 219*. I am not aware of any other thermostats for the 6.0.

NYC your truck should run good at that temp.

I couldnt find any thermostats besides the stock, so thats why I brought it up here. Second part of the question is for those who have already switched to the ELC. Have you noticed a difference in your delta? IS the ELC more or less efficent in the heat exchange?
